Dow's DOWSIL EC-6601 electrically conductive adhesive
Dow's DOWSIL EC-6601 electrically conductive adhesive is described by the company as "a next-generation material engineered for reliable performance and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in demanding electrical and electronics applications in the transportation, communications, and consumer markets." The adhesive reportedly combines strong electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding capabilities across a wide range of frequencies with durable mechanical and conductive properties over time.
“Today’s most innovative electrical and electronics technologies need a strong adhesive with stable EMI shielding across a broad frequency range, including the millimeter range for 5G,” said Jeroen Bello, Global Senior Marketing Manager for New Technologies at Dow. “Our new DOWSIL EC-6601 electrically conductive adhesive provides this, along with long-lasting mechanical and electrical performance, and the ability to bond to a variety of substrates.”
The electrically conductive adhesive is formulated to form strong bonds to many substrates and has greater than 150% elongation to enable flexibility at the joints. The material can be used as an adhesive, formed-in-place gaskets (FIPG), or cure-in-place gaskets (CIPG). This silicone elastomer has an optimized dispense rate and is formulated to withstand high temperatures, humidity, vibration, compression, and tensile stress. With its high elongation, the material can stretch to support the movement of a joint when used as an adhesive, FIPG, or CIPG. In addition, the company says it contains premium fillers and provides excellent corrosion resistance.
